There have been specific threats, Ellis said, although he declined to provide details.
Manafort, 69, is the first member of Trump's election team to face trial on charges arising from the ongoing Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into alleged Russia's interference in the 2016 USA general elections.
According to the Hill, Judge Ellis, in denying the left-leaning outlets' request, claimed that more of the jury pool would have asked to be excused if the jurors had known their names would be made public.
The jury is weighing hundreds of pieces of evidence and an 18-count indictment accusing Manafort of tax fraud, bank fraud and failing to disclose foreign bank accounts.
For the past three weeks, Manafort's lawyers have been arguing in a Virginia federal courtroom for his innocence on alleged tax and bank fraud crimes.
Prosecutors say Manafort earned some $60 million consulting for the Russia-backed political party in Ukraine, and hid at least $16 million in income from the IRS between 2010 and 2014. But you know what? Unlike CNN's request, Ellis granted this, meaning the jury will not return to their deliberations until Monday. He happens to be a very good person. Defense attorney Kevin Downing said the first day of deliberations was "overall, a very good day for Mr. Manafort".
Prosecutors accused Manafort, 69, of hiding from USA tax authorities $16 million in money he earned as a political consultant for pro-Russian politicians in Ukraine to fund an opulent lifestyle and then lying to banks to secure $20 million in loans after his Ukrainian income dried up and he needed cash.
The case is the first to go to trial stemming from Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russia's role in the 2016 USA election, although the charges largely predate Manafort's five months working on Donald Trump's successful campaign.
Meanwhile, in remarks to reporters at the White House, Trump commented on the trial.
During his testimony, Gates, 46, acknowledged stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from Manafort and having an extramarital affair. Gates, of course, has already pled guilty and is cooperating with Mueller and his investigators not only on the cases against Manafort but also the broader Russian Federation investigation.
Manafort was forced to step down from the Trump campaign when questions emerged about his work for Yanukovych.
The case does not involve any work Manafort did during his five-month stint as Trump's campaign chairman, but it centers on charges that Manafort hid income he earned from political consulting work for a former pro-Russia president of Ukraine from 2010 to 2014 to escape paying USA taxes on that income.
